70th Birthday

Hiya everyone, hope your all keeping well, gosh are these hols flying by, not that we can call it Summer with this dreadful weather we're having.....ggggrrrrrr..

Anyhow, I was asked to make two 70th birthday cards, one being a handbag themed card from the grandson. Here's what I came up with, pleased to say that the recipient was very happy.....phew, I always dread handing the cards over just in case they hate them....lol!!


The papers are Anna Griffin, as you can see my sewing machine came in very handy.  I used the Marianne Design butterfly die available at Dies To Die For, HERE as are the Nesties Label 10, HERE.

Below is what the inside of the card looks like.



Here's the handbag themed card I made.  I used a Sizzix die to create the handbag, I made an extra one to fill with some small choccies.


Thanks for popping by my lil oasis, see ya soon
luv 'n' craft hugs

How can someone not like these wonderful keepsakes! They are adorable. A beautiful gift. I must say that I too feel that way sometimes. Honestly they are stunning. What else can I say. Wish I knew where my sewing machine leads were. I had a clean out and have a funny feeling they may have been thrown. :(( Happy Crafting Tammy x
